Way back in 2007, before Forgetting Sarah Marshall blew up and America discovered who he was, Russell Brand did an oddball British comedy with Rupert Everett and Mischa Barton called St. Trinian’s. Now that he’s on his way to becoming a name (and just wait until Get Him To The Greek is released and the world elects him as its king), the film’s finally getting a limited theatrical release stateside. In fact I’ve got a screener copy sitting on the desk in front of me, clamoring for my attention.

The screener, for now, goes unwatched. But I may pop it in later tonight after browsing through the 9 clips from the film we’ve got for you below. Billed as a rauncy comedy set in a school for young ladies, the clips in question make it look as though it may not, in fact, be as entirely awful as you might expect. Earlier tonight on Twitter, Corona’s Coming Attracions head honcho Patrick Sauriol called it “like watching Gossip Girl done with a Benny Hill feel but without the nudity.” For some inexplicable reason, that sounds like something I have to see.

Check out all nine clips from St. Trinian’s below and check back with Cinema Blend for my now all but inevitable review.
